Daniel Tribulation Period

Good Essays
Daniel’s 70 weeks lay out God’s plan for the nation, Israel (see Daniel 9:24-27). According to most scholars within both the Dispensational and Covenantal camps, the Messiah (Jesus) is cut off (crucified) after the 7 and 62 (7+62=69) weeks. These are weeks of years, not days. Dispensationalists teach a parenthesis (2000-year gap) between the 69th and 70th week, which becomes the church age of grace, essentially starting from Christ’s resurrection and extending all the way until the rapture of His Church just prior to His second coming. The future 7-year tribulation period is Daniel’s final 70th week of years (7 years). The Old Testament refers to this period as “the time of Jacob’s (Israel’s) trouble”. In that time, God will again turn His focus to The Nation of Israel, thus fulfilling eternal and unconditional promises spanning throughout the Old Testament, staring with Abraham. …show more content…
As already stated, Antiochus is one of the clearest types of The Antichrist in The Bible. The Abomination of Desolation that Antiochus committed is a “type” from the 2nd century B.C., that points forward to its future “anti-type” which shall be fulfilled half-way through The Tribulation Period — Daniel’s 70th week. Types are biblical characters (or events) that contain many characteristics of their future anti-types. These characteristics may be personal, behavioral, or experiential. Typology is useful in prophetic study because many of the same “type” of events, characteristics, etc. already recorded in The Bible, will resurface again in (or around) their anti-type. Most typology in the Old Testament points to the ultimate anti-type — Jesus Christ. But one can also find plenteous types of The Antichrist in The Bible. Other types exist, such as, The Old Testament Sabbath Day of Rest, a type (or shadow) that points to the ultimate day of rest — The

    As already stated, Antiochus is one of the clearest types of Antichrist in the Bible. The Abomination of Desolation he committed is clearly both an event that happened in the 2nd century B.C. as well as a future event that will happen half-way through the tribulation period of Daniel’s 70th week. Types in the Bible can be either events or people in the Old Testament that fulfil a type of its future anti-type. The historical type will share various qualities with its future anti-type.…

    The last, explains it better and amplifies the first, and without the first it wouldn’t be understandable what the future coming is or what is about to come. The second reason is that Jesus also reads the Old Testament. Jesus not only read the Old Testament, but also preached about it (Found in Luke 20:16-21) now that is interesting. Something that also results to be interesting, is that the apostles also used the Old Testament to preach to Jesus. We can see that frequently in the Gospels when the writers cited to the Old Testament to show the finishing of the prophecies that were signaled to Jesus as the messiah (Even in some parts when in the wagons of the apostles were mentioned verses of the Old Testament to predicate to Jesus) Lastly as the 3rd reason being is that the Old Testament also talks about Jesus.…

    To this idea belongs a literary forms of which many concepts or represented in Luke 24: 49-53 and Acts 1: 9-12. The departing figures testament the earth bound scenario, the transporting cloud and the interpreting angels. This passage sounds direct echoes of the accounts of Elijah’s ascension in 2King 2: 9-13 and together with the third Gospel passages showing Elijah parallels, may attest Luke’s depth to Christians circles that celebrated Jesus’ earthly ministry as the climax Israel’s colorful tradition of charismatic prophecy.

    Constantine formed a group of Christians known as the Council of Nicea in 325 CE. They usually met to discuss the Christian religion. One of the compromises formed was that of Easter. We commonly see this day as Christ 's resurrection; however, it can be proven that it was not. A biblical day consists of twelve hours and twelve nights(New International Version, John 11:9); the biblical day begins from Sundown to the next sundown (New International Version, Leviticus 23:32).In the book of Luke 23:52-54, New International Version, Joseph laid Jesus in the tomb, as the sabbath was beginning, which is Saturday, but the days are from sundown to sundown; Jesus was laid to rest on Wednesday evening before the high sabbath(New International Version, Exodus 12:16).…

    Isaiah 53 Analysis

    The passage of Isaiah 53 (4-8), for many centuries has been summed up as a poetic song in which the prophet Isaiah depicted the climatic period of world history in which the coming Messiah will arrive. In today’s culture this view is again reoriented in that many Christians alone see this passage to be a prophecy of the ministry in which Jesus Christ will walk. When looking into the passage, Christians see the ‘servant’ as Jesus, and his suffering for our sins, and the sacrifice he made for us. However like many passages throughout the bible, the interpretation in which it is understood is dependent on the perspective in which it is looked from. When breaking down these four verses, the perspectives that arrive are the time it was written at,…

    However, as the Wesleyan Theologian, Dr. Ted Campbell points out, the Scriptures are their own best interpreters and unclear passages should be understood according to the meaning of clear passages (Campbell, 64). For example, during the Passover meal, Jesus tells Peter that before a rooster crows, he will deny Jesus three times (Matt. 26:34) and a few hours later that is what happens (26:75). Jesus also foretold the destruction of the Temple (Lk. 21:6) some forty years before it happened.…

    It is known as the “sacred core” of the Hebrew bible. It is here that the religion’s rituals and daily behavior is governed by the laws included in its scripture (Molloy 293). It includes all of the significant covenants that God has made, and gives guidance to God’s chosen people. Year round the Torah is read, and it culminates in a celebration known as Sukkot. This festival described by Molloy “ends the cycle of Torah readings that began the year before”.…
